Q.3 Mr. Dhirendra Kumar is a 24 years old professional, working as a programmer for the largest software
company in India. He has earned his bachelor degree of engineering in Computer Science from IIT
Mumbai and has been working for the company for last three years. He belongs to Pathankot and his
parents live there. For last three years, he has been staying in Bengaluru along with his other colleagues
in a rented accommodation. He plans to get married not before the age of 28 and would like to have his
own house before he gets married. His father is working currently at Pathankot and is due to retire in
another ten years. He plans to convince to his parents to shift to Bengaluru from Pathankot to stay with
him post his father’s retirement. Mr. Dhirendra is the star performer of his company. He currently enjoys a
package of Rs. 18 lakhs per annum. After accounting for his expenditure, he has been able to save close
to Rs. 30 lakhs over the last three years. Till date he has been putting his savings in either Fixed deposits
(FDs) of his bank or some of the tax savings instruments such as Public Provident Fund etc. However,
now he would like to see his investments grow much faster so that he can meet his marriage related
expenditure four years later and also make the down payment for his new house before marriage. He has
been getting various investment advices from different people telling him where to put his money. His
parents are advising him to buy some gold every year and put rest of the money in FD. His boss tells him
to buy the house right away, even though it could be smaller than he would need later. According to his
boss, value of his small house would appreciate in four years and that the sale proceeds would partially
fund the new purchase. Some of his friends have told him that investing in high safety corporate bonds
will give him better returns than putting money in PPF. Amongst all this, he is getting the constant feed
through newspapers of Sensex and Nifty scaling new heights every other day and a few one-off stories of
rags to riches. Mr. Dhirendra is thoroughly confused between the choices and he now approaches a
professional (you) to advice him on the right investment strategy. Some questions that you need to
answer for Mr. Dhirendra:
a) Where should he put his money, in gold, in FD, in PPF, in real estate, in corporate bonds or in stocks?
Or do you have some other strategy in mind? Provide your answer with the rationale.
b) Should he invest in any of these assets directly or should he choose the mutual fund route or create a
portfolio of mutual funds? How will choosing the mutual fund route (single mutual fund or a portfolio of
mutual funds) will prove beneficial to Mr. Dhirendra? Explain your recommendation with reasons for the
same.

Financial Institutions and Markets
Q1. Ms. Vijaya, after completing her graduation, has recently joined a bank. With a steady income now
and good growth prospects for her career, she intends to save regularly and increase the amount of
savings gradually over the years. Her colleagues in the bank have advised her investing in Mutual Funds
(MFs), as a suitable option for her. However, Ms. Vijaya is not at all familiar with MFs and has some
queries such as:
a) What are mutual funds and why should she be investing through mutual fund?
b) What are the various types of mutual funds? Prepare a detailed answer for her queries.
Q2. Mr. Sudhindra Kumar, aged 60, has been an investor in stock market for the last 35 years. When he
initially started investing in late 1980s, he used to take positions in the stock markets after studying the
annual reports of the company. He used to scan financial newspaper everyday to spot a scrip for buying
or selling. He used to generate better returns on his investments than his other colleagues who would
solely rely on the trends in stock prices to choose the stock. However, by the end of late 1990s, Mr.
Sudhindra realized that he is not able to spot as many investment opportunities through his existing
methods. He observed that her junior colleague, Ms. Rama was generating better returns than him. Ms.
Rama also shared with Mr. Sudhindra that she picks up stocks based on the recommendation of his
stock-broker friend. His recommendations have been a hit as he is very well connected to many
corporates, financial intermediaries and other brokers. He seems to get to know about the corporate and
market developments ahead of the many investors. Mr. Sudhindra requested Ms. Rama to share such
invest tips with him as well in future. Using these tips judiciously along with his old methods of investing,
he continued to generate handsome returns on his investment. After various stock-market scams, in the
early and mid 2000s, various regulations were brought in place by SEBI to curb manipulation of stock
prices and bring more transparency of information, especially for the small investors. As a result, the flow
of reliable and worthy investment tips through Ms. Rama dried up and once again. Today, Mr. Sudhindra
finds that his older methods of investing are not as effective as they used to be in past, in identifying an
investment-worthy stock. All the information related to any stock is almost instantaneously and
simultaneously available to the whole market, with the help of technology. Hence, opportunities to beat
the market in generating returns have become far lesser than in past. Based on the above information,
what are your observations regarding the market efficiency of Indian market since 1980s? Put your
commentary/conclusions with your rationale for the same.
Q.3 DEF Limited is an Indian company, engaged in export oriented trading of various manufactured
items. The company buys products manufactured in India and sells its products primarily in US. The
company pays to its vendors/sellers in Indian rupee and it receives payment in USD after 90 days of
dispatching its products. Also, the company borrows money in Indian Rupee for working capital purposes.
The cost of borrowing for the company is around 14%-15%. The company aims to reduce its borrowing
cost and is exploring options for the same.
a) How can DEF limited manage/mitigate the forex risks?
b) What kind of Swaps instruments DEF Limited can use to manage the forex related risks and reduce
borrowing costs?

theories of motivation were discussed. He was highly impressed with the simplicity of the Maslow’s Need
Hierarchy theory and Herzberg’s motivation model. He decided to implement the same at the workplace
for employees of Lifelong Insurance. He convinced the CEO of the company to incorporate the factors of
recognition, advancement, growth for employees. The CEO supported Joe and various plans for
employee recognition, advancement, etc were rolled out. The plans received a mixed response. Some
found them as a cheap substitute to salary hikes while the back-office staff enjoyed the processes but
failed to recognize its impact on work. The field executives said that their job was already challenging and
commission on insurance sales acted as a motivator to them. After about a couple of months of
implementing these programs, Joe was highly disappointed to notice that the programs did not have the
impact as desired. Joe faced severe criticism from the top management of the company.

employees. Chalk out a detailed plan of action for the same. (10 Marks)
3. DKMG is a CA firm having 15 branches in different parts of the country. In the home office there are
more than 45 employees. This company has a performance rating under which the employees are rated
quarterly by a committee of executives. Linear rating scales are used for conducting the appraisal. The
qualities considered are responsibility, initiative, interest in work, leadership potential, co-operative
attitude and community service. After the performance is evaluated, the ratings are discussed with the
concerned employees by their immediate boss who counsels them. The ratings are used to influence
promotions and salary adjustments of the employees. Recently few employees of the company called on
the firm’s owner to express their dissatisfaction with the ratings they had received. Because their ratings
were comparatively low, they had been denied annual increments in salary. Approximately, two thirds
of all the employees received such increments. The aggrieved employees argued that their ratings did
not accurately represent their qualifications or performance. They insisted that “community service”
was not actually a part of their job and that what they do off the job is none of the company’s business.
The employees threatened to stop work. The threat caused concern to the management. This particular
experience convinced the management that ratings may represent a serious hazard to satisfactory
relationship with employees. Even the owner finds that performance appraisal is a dangerous source of
friction and its hazards outweigh its values; so it should be discontinued altogether.
Questions:
a. How far do you agree with the management that performance appraisal should be discontinued? (5
Marks)
b. If you were the HR manager, how would you tackle the situation?
